    My rabbit is getting bald spot form scratching and pulling at his fur. I have tried rubbing him with oil.

    Any other solutions?

    If you are certain that it isn't Ring Worm, then use cat flea powder. Douse well and rub it in. Repeat in 10 days if necessary. Please note... it must be CAT (or kitten) flea powder and not for dogs! Dogs don't groom themselves, but cats and rabbits do, so the ingredients are different.

    Ivermectin horse wormer. I had a doe with horrible ear mites and we wormed her with a pea sized amount of horse paste and they cleared up in 5 to 7 days. If that is not an option, get the ear mite cat treatment and put a couple drops in each ear.
